    4 Speed SUPER COUPE ?!!!?

    Anybody else have any thoughts on this? If it's not one of one, it's got to be single digits at least if legit. Non orig trans bothers me, but we know how the oval spring bushing would walk the axle and tear them out of 318 cars even. Not supposed to have been made but I've had close to ten people swear to me that they had an R/T or Roadrunner equipped with 360-4/ 3spOD "in the day". I questioned the line spacing on the tag, but quickly found other tags in my catalog with the same close spacing to the bottom rib. Cali emissions non-ELB 4100-228 engine. All metalwork done ready for refinish and complete for reassembly. And it's also one of the western delivery Dodges from the February batch that for some reason unknown didn't get built, or got rebuilt on a fresh body after a possible February transport catastrophe in May, 90 days later. Door sticker doesn't match tag schedule. Same as every other Dodge SC in this vin range. But that still doesn't answer the Overdrive Elephant in the Room. Could this be the absolute Holy Grail of Super Coupes? Galen Govier said long ago that statistically there should have been Kit Cars made for the Canadian market with OD, but said they would have been 318 cars which didn't fit with the 43 package. I've seen some really strange stuff in documenting the 67 package and am torn as to whether to believe this without the numbers trans and after reconstruction. I think that basically I would want to see the shifter cut out in the floor from both sides with my own eyes and feel it with my own hand. But I'm ready to be a Believer!

    You could only get the automatic behind the 360. You could get a 4 speed (3 speed w/overdrive) behind the 318. If it is a factory stick, it is a 318 not a 360. I tried to get a 360 stick back in 77, and again in 78 but it was a no go.
    Jus sayin.

    There's a discussion about this car on For f/m/j-bodies Only, started by a member that knows more about f-bodies than most. As mentioned, there is no such thing as a 4-speed SC (or any model with a 360). In the photo's you can see the cobbled in clutch shaft brackets. For the right price (NOT $12,000) a 4-speed conversion would be no big deal but on a SC that's being advertised as original and a so called "one of one",,,,,,,,,,I see scam and wouldn't touch it with a 20 foot pole. What else is bogus??? Is it even a real SC? Legitimate questions in this case.

    Well I'd say that previous ad makes it pretty clear that a new fictitious tag was made for the 3spOD code. Surprised nobody has flagged it yet. I guess the characters on the tag do look a little fat also. And I'm not sure what the C is in C6X9. All the standard black non-reclining low back bucket seat interiors I've seen were designated D6X9.

    Bogus, fake, scam, crook, unscrupulous owner, and many other terms I could use. Who's to say it hasn't had the VIN tag swapped to a different body or a plain Jane car made into an SC? It's all just too fishy. Stay away,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,far away! lol
